Service Code for Development Officers – Tennakoon
By Faadhila Thassim
Minister of Public Services, Provincial Councils and Local Government, Janaka Bandara Tennakoon said the Ministry has taken steps to introduce a Service Code for Development Officers (DO).
“Over 80 per cent of the issues faced by Development Officers could be addressed by introducing a Service Code for the profession,’’ Tennakoon said addressing a Media briefing on Wednesday (3).
He added certain politically motivated trade unions were attempting to take credit for the Government’s recruitment drive of over 50,000 graduates.
He said, although the Government originally promised to recruit 50,000 graduates to the State sector over 58,000 graduates have been recruited to the service upto now.
